Jogakbo - The Art of Wishing Happiness
About Jogakbo - The Art of Wishing Happiness
Jogakbo, patchwork bojagi, was made with leftover fabric remnants from other projects. Using Korean traditional techniques such as Gamchimjil, Settam Sangchim and Ssamsol, Youngmin will teach basic jogakbo construction in this class. Bojagi construction involves hand stitching, which can be very relaxing. While working on your bojagi, wish for the happiness and well-being of the recipient of your finished bojagi.
During the class, Youngmin will show you how to use many small pieces of fabrics to create a geometric patterned bojagi. The finished project will have a unique composition of different shapes, lines and texture.
This class is limited to 25 students.
